Templo San Antonio, Piriapolis

4.2
#7 of 13 in Things to do in Piriapolis
Perched hilltop, Templo San Antonio makes a tranquil and picturesque place for quiet contemplation. Built in the 18th century in a Portuguese Baroque style, the distinctive structure includes four rising pinnacles with spherical adornments. The views of Piriapolis from the hilltop are alone worth the visit. A few small restaurants and souvenir shops surround the church.

  • Worth the walk up to the temple, this is small, but the sight of Piriapolis and its beaches is very good, take excellent photos. It is best to go early when still not is full of visitors.

  • I visited the Hill of San Antonio when he was heading to Punta del Leste, a city tour that left even Montevideo. I love the day and found exhausting the back anyway because for my taste, I don't care to watch famous mansions, what most tours to Punta lose more of me IO-day walking between the mansions, I'd rather spend more time in Montevideo and Colonia del sacramento. But back to the Hill of San Antonio, the view is maravilhosaaa Piriápolis. Beach ... is very worthwhile ...

  • A trip not to be missed especially when shops closed and people has gone virtually is arriving to see the sunset and then the coast at night. Beautiful

Where to stay in Piriapolis

No one can say for sure what Francisco Pira would have made of the modern development in Piriapolis--but he wanted a beach resort, and he's sure got one. Hotels old and new cling to the beach, offering a variety of facilities including private swimming pools, outdoor dining areas, casinos, and spas. For something a bit quieter, explore the resort-style accommodations in the less built-up areas of the beach. Alternatively, head a bit back from the coast for simpler, modest options.
